I've been thinking of these 9mm log double gang pots for a while now. They are seem to be well respected in the other thread.

The 9mm linear double gang pots are here.

By the way, I would be interested in several other things like job boxes.

and

There is a bunch more things I'd be interested in.

I guess a group order to Jaycar then?

I just realized that the pots I referred to are all single gang. I was going to use them on monoblocks, but for general use most people don't want a knob per channel.

So Jaycar seems to be the source for thes- too bad they don't have conventional shafts.

Jaycars US$ pricing is very reasonable. Shipping is air mail. I would love a misc item group buy from Jaycar.

I have several things picked out. Should anyone be interested, I have time and could help organize and distribute these items.

Does Jaycar have some matching knobs that would fit these pots?

I have used an aluminum knob with a setscrew, made for a 6mm shaft
on this type of splined shaft. I was able to get it to clamp quite well and it didjn't wobble. I aligned the setscrew so it was pressing on the slot.

I see the boys have come out to play. It's nice to see this thread heat up

I think this is the direction we should take. A ladder attenuator is likely to serve the greatest population because of the flexability it offers in its buildout but we must be careful. Peter Daniel has posted his findings on "cheaper" make before break switches and he called them unusable because of the noise introduced with each new switch junction. This is not to say that the ones you suggested suffer the same illness but as in all things, it would be a good idea to get a real world report before making a commitment. Thanks for your post.

I believe Electus Distribution is Jaycar's distributor so you get exactly the same product for less if you have a ABN. (Australian Business Number)

Just to share with you... guys...

A few days a go I try a Taiwan Alpha 16mm (? not sure actually) 10K Linear dual gang pot on my gainclone amp. (replacing Citec 100K log pot) Though the look of the Alpha pot is just so-so (the Citec looks better), the result is very good. The bass is a bit flabby but the mids and highs are glorious.

They look like the picture I attach (got it from Electus site) but mine with metric shaft, rather than imperial as in the picture.

Might be the same unit is available in Mouser is in: (drawing F or H, but dual gang and linear)
http://www.mouser.com/catalog/620/433.pdf

Now the interresting part is... this pot, in Indonesia, I get it for about US$ 40cents...

Regards,

Regarding the Alpha pot, Jaycar seems to have it here:

http://www1.jaycarelectronics.com/pr...Min=&priceMax=
and
http://www1.jaycarelectronics.com/pr...Min=&priceMax=

They have 50K and 100K linear dual gang pots, but I do not see the 10K listed.

I suspect that all the Alpha carbon pots have silver wipers, so you are probably right- I suspect all of their carbon ones sound good. The Mouser people seem to have no interest in dual gang Alpha pots, which really hurts us! Watch out, we might need a group buy from Indonesia!!
